Including the Peroidiic Box info ??

Dear Amber Users,

After the MD equilibration of solvent molecules the final .rst (restart) file is converted to pdb (using ambpdb) and load it is xleap and save the . Here the peroidic informations is lost - then I include the peroidic conditios in the !entry boundbox in by putting the box size calculated from the final VOLUME of the equilibration. When I load the in xleap I could see only 1/4 of the solvent space is covered by the periodic box while the original box before starting the equilibration covers the whole solvent space. When I check the solvent boxes provided with Amber it covers the whole solvent space.

My question is that can I use as the solvent box for solavating my system ? Is this the right way of making the solvent BOX from the equilibrated coordinates.

Your kind suggestions would be highly thankful,

Best wishes,
